Tekken 6 Campaign Mode Looks like an Old School Beat Em' Up

Before we get into the awesome new looking campaign mode, lets get some announcements out of the way.   Namco-Bandai has announced an October 27th release date for Tekken 6 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PSP.  For the truly dedicated fan the Fight Stick bundle will be available for $149.99 and contain the game, a wireless Hori fight stick and a limited edition art book.  

Tekken 6 will also feature the Cardboard Tube Samurai from the popular Penny-Arcade webcomic.

So why are we talking about a fighting game on a co-op website?   Well my friends that's because we got a good look at the new Co-Op Campaign mode in the game, and it looks like a classic co-op beat em up.  

The latest video from the PlayStation Blog showcases the two player online mode.  Fighters will work through linear stages beating up baddies with a friend (or AI).  There's plenty of weapons to pick up as well, and you won't just be fighting henchmen.  In one scene we see both players working to take down a giant robot.  

There's no word on the length of the co-op mode, as it is described as "scenarios," but the short video shows quite a few different locations.  This one is definitely on our co-op radar now.
